Seattle Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin will not play this Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as he continues to recover from hip surgery in August.
Head coach Pete Carroll said the team rested Harvin this week after he became sore after returning to practice a week ago. Harvin went for a follow-up MRI that confirmed there are no complications from the surgery and that he just needed to be dialed back a bit in his recovery.
Carroll said Harvin was progressing and was "ready to go" before "the wear and tear of the comeback" caused some soreness for him.
The team has time to activate Harvin to the 53-man roster.
